Boys Golf

FARMER CITY, Ill -- Austin Maxwell shot a 42 at the Woodlawn Country Club to lead Blue Ridge.

Maxwell's score was good enough to put him in fifth place among individual golfers. But it was not enough to carry the Knights to victory over the Titans in the dual meet.

Mason Potts scored a 43 to contribute to Blue Ridge's final score.

Blue Ridge's boys golf team will be back in action on Thursday, when the Knights will travel to Ridgeview.

Girls Golf

FARMER CITY, Ill. -- Amber Tsevelekos shot a season-best 43 to put herself in a three-way tie for first place among individual girls golfers at Woodlawn Country Club.

However, because the Lady Knights only had three entrants for their dual meet with El Paso-Gridley, the Titans won the dual meet.

Blue Ridge' girls golfers will tee off at the LeRoy Invitational on Saturday at 8 a.m. The Lady Knights' home meet against Monticello, originally scheduled for Monday, has been cancelled.
